Resize images with AI upscaling / preserving resolution

I can't believe that there are AI image and content generation tools in photoshop, but scaling a layer down, then scaling it back up at some later time preserves the 'lower' resolution of the scaled down object and you just end up scaling up a blurry mess.

 

I'm aware that making that image a smart object first is the right workflow and preserves all of the edits (and more, and it's awesome) but sometimes I do one off or non-production play files and I just work with flat layers. I think preserving the original image size (at least) would be great, if not, scaling up via simple AI pixel doubling tools would be even better so that if you're using a small image and want to pull out the resolution, you don't have to use other tools. 

 

Thanks!

Protecting Photoshop users from the consequences of their own actions would have to come at a price, I guess – in this case at least filesize (which could in turn affect performance and opening- and saving-times). 

 

What about the use of painterly tools/touch-up tools? 

If a Layer is stored at two sizes should the full res-version just be dropped once someone starts painting on the downsampled Layer or should the operations be performed on both sizes? (Again performance could be an issue.)

 

What about non-proportinal transformations, skewing, warping, …? Would you expect Layers thus transformed to also maintain a hidden Smart Object-feature?
